Asbestosis Claims

The weeks and months after a diagnosis with asbestosis can be a confusing, frightening and emotional time for everyone concerned.  Nigel Askew Solicitors make the process of making an asbestosis claim as stress free as possible, through the expertise of our solicitors who specialise in asbestos related disease claims.

What is Asbestosis?

Asbestosis is a serious, unremitting, fibrous hardening and scarring of the lungs. This scarring can cause serious lung impairment and heart disease. Symptoms of asbestosis include shortness of breath, coughing and a dry crackling sound while inhaling.

Asbestosis is a slowly progressive disease with a development period of 15 to 30 years or more. Asbestosis is usually developed by those who have had large amounts of exposure to airborne asbestos dust, over a long period of time.

 If you would like advice regarding a possible asbestosis claim, call the Asbestosis solicitors at Nigel Askew Solicitors for a free, no obligation assessment of your case, or submit the online enquiry form using the form at the top of this page.
